air strikes. we have team fox coverage. jonathan hunt is with us at the united nations. let's first go to ed henry live at the white house. egypt is play ago key role in these talks. how is that going with the new president there? >> so far, so good. but there are a lot of wary eyes here at the white house and around the world because president morsi is new. he's from the muslim brotherhood. a lot of question marks about whether he can really be trusted. you'll remember back in the day, former egyptian president, hosni mubarak, far from perfect, but seen as an honest broker in these talks, and somebody who is a pillar in trying to bring all sides together. what's interesting is that today president morsi was saying the right things about how he was trying to bring together the parties for a cease fire. but that came two days after republicans on capitol hill threatened to take away u.s. aid unless he played a more constructive role. take a listen. >> egypt, watch what you do and how you do it. you're teetering with the congress on having your aid cut off if you keep inciting violence b
. palestinian leaders predict they are going to score historic win tomorrow when the united nations votes on whether to recognize a palestinian state. analysts expect the vote to pass and by a big majority it would grant palestine only limited understood -- statehood. against the effort it could give palestinians new leverage against israel. mahmoud abbas has said he will not negotiate with israel as long as it keeps expanding settlements in the west bank. and the israeli prime minister has refused to freeze that construction. "the fox report's" correspondent jonathan hunt is at the united nations tonight. january jonathan explain the u.s. here. >> it boils down to the simple argue that officials believe this will hinder rather than help the peace process between the israelis and palestinians, that it will enable and encourage the palestinians to pursue war crimes charges in other international institutions such as the international criminal court against israeli officials over the actions that they have taken recently in past years in gaza. in the words of the secretary of state hillary
they're troubled by what the united nations ambassador susan rice is telling them. and now the acting cia director has some serious problems as well. president obama pulls out all the stops to keep middle class taxes low, but will congress go along with higher taxes for the rich? plus, a long secret u.s. plan, get this, to explode an atomic bomb on the moon. what were they thinking? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> today we may be at the tipping point for one of the most important decisions president obama needs to make as he begins his second term. on capitol hill republicans including moderate republicans are sending the president a clear warning, don't nominate susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. rice is the current u.s. ambassador to the united nations. she spent a second day meeting with senators trying to explain some of her inaccurate comments she made after the september 11th terrorist attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. cnn's senior congressional correspondent dana bash is joining us now from capitol hill with the ver
was a terrorist attack. but that isn't what the u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice said when she went on national television five days after the attack. today rice is up on capitol hill. she's explaining what happened and some big-name republicans clearly are not very happy with her answers. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is following what's become a pretty long day -- a tiring day for the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. what's the latest, dana? >> reporter: wolf, the three republican senators who had vowed to block susan rice from being secretary of state if the president nominates her had really softened the rhetoric in recent days. i'm told the reason for that was because it was a curtesy in order for them to wait until they had a face-to-face meeting with her which was today. after that meeting their criticism was harsher than ever. the way these grim-faced gop senators tell it, susan rice's attempt to calm their criticism backfired. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get. >> i'm more disturbed now than i
met with the jordanian foreign minister and the secretary general of the united nations today, with the united states secretary of state, hillary clinton. although we are not on the ground in the gaza strip, we have been very active for all parties, including hamas. >> the problem has not been, has at any time, that the palestinian authority, when it comes to gaza, is irrelevant, and mahmoud abbas has really had no say in this at the moment, and that's a problem going forward in the bigger picture of palestinian unity, is it not? is this an opportunity in some ways for hamas and fatah, palestinian authority, to make up, to move forward with some sort of sense of unity? >> well, first of all, president abbas is the elected president of the palestinian people everywhere. he has not only electriced president of palestinians in the west bank. he was elected in 2005 in free democratic elections. stoo hamas is running gaza. let's be real about that. >> what i'm trying to tell you -- nobody can deny that we have political differences with hamas. our top priority right now and it has

leading our mission in the united nations. she was put in the spotlight in order to communicate what the intelligence community and administration believed to be the best way to communicate the attack on benghazi. rightly now congress is looking at the question of what went wrong, but the question about whether or not she is personally responsible for it is a bit far-fetched, and it's really going into a point where members of congress are making themselves look silly. they're day in and day outhave different statements. the house sent a letter to house republicans on posing her potential nomination to secretary of state. less than half signed onto it. there's not much appetite for this fight. we saw it in the campaign, and we're not sure where this is heading. it does seem like a losing hand where she ends up in administration. >> mike morrell was there with susan rice. there's this notion that there's an obsession here. it seems as if, especially when it comes to senators mccain, graham and ayotte, there's a lot of their attention directed to ambassador rice, but not a real hard pu
-month period bradley manning was abused. the united nations has admitted this, a speciwhy was he treated way? h several were ordered to abuse him to get a confession. there's been no confession and that's the case that's going on now. and that case is a reflection in the decay of the rule of law. hillary clinton's spokesperson resigned over the issue. the entire quantico prisoner base was affected. it reflects serious problems within the military system. it has a feeling about accountability and unaccountability is flowing into other parts of our life. >> now i don't want to get into detail, i know you have a strong point of view, obviously on how bradley manning has been treated. but i didn't want to go down that path. i wanted to ask a question about something else you thought about him. you said what they were dog is perhaps to coerce him to get you involved in all of this. he could make a deal to serve limited time. and to make that deal, you could be the guy who loses out. are you worried that that could be the deal, he says this is what julian assange did to get the information so you cou

, united nations will vote on whether to upgrade status to nonmember state. it's also a move opposed by the united states and israel. now, here's the headline from an op ed in the new york times. support palestinian statehood. that was not written by a palestinian, but by an israeli. a former deputy foreign minister of israel and architect of the oslo accord to be exact. the question remains, the israel survive as a jewish state if it does not agree to a two-state exclusion? specifically a solution that partitions jerusalem to both muz lems and jus? jeremy joins me along with morton klein, president of the zionist organization of america. i want to read more from that op-ed "the new york times" today. and continued to write because mr. abbas of the plo has committed to the principles of nonviolence, the bid is the only way of putting palestinians back on the agenda. the israeli foreign ministry is threatening to nullify the oslo accords. if the world recognizes a palestinian state. this is preposterous. what's your response? >> well, i wish that were true. we all would like a peacefu
the three benchmarks articulated by the united nations, that is recognizing my country's right to exist, abandoning terrorism and violence, supporting peace, then the door is open to negotiations. but the bad news is i see no evidence of that so far. on the contrary, i think in many ways hamas is stuck in a very extreme position and the evidence for that we saw today. we had the bombing in tel aviv on the bus. and hamas praised that. they welcomed that. they said that was legitimate. and so as long as hamas is doing that sort of thing it is difficult to be optimistic. but if they do change, if they do moderate. if they fundamentally reserve some of their very hard line positions, the door can be opened. >> i mean, do you accept, though, obviously in the last eight or nine days, 30 times as many palestinians have been killed as israelis? so clearly, there is bloodshed on both sides. and israel is not blameless here, either. >> i think the most important issue, though, is what were we doing? i mean, this whole operation was not to take territory or change regimes or something grandiose li
holliday the former u.s. ambassador for special political affairs to the united nations. he's currently the president and ceo of the meridian international center, which is a public diplomacy organization. ambassador let me start with the news of the shooting along the border between gas zba and israel. how troubling is an incident like this? and how perilous is it, really, for this fragile, fragile cease-fire? >> well, good morning. the local level, it's obviously very troubling, and there are, you know, lives at stake, and there's this delicate balance on the cease-fire. but in the bigger picture, this is -- there's a lot invested in this cease-fire, at the political level and it appears to be at this point more of the typical border incident category kind of problem rather than a directed violation from either side of the cease-fire. i think that's what we're going to have to watch for is what happens next. >> a lot of credit ins are looking at this agreement as a short-term fix, a band-aid that will last as long as, say, hamas manages to rearm and then perhaps start shooting rockets
. the cia said the assault was, in fact, a terrorist attack. rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, is viewed as president obama's top pick to replace secretary of state hillary clinton, who plans to step down early next year. both senators mccain and lindsey graham previously vowed to block her possible nomination. i'm joined now by dan lothian at the white house for us. and dan, what do we hear from mccain and graham this weekend? it seems maybe they provided a little bit of wiggle room now. >> it certainly does appear that way. what we're seeing is a change in tone. there had been sort of this harsh rhetoric they wanted to block this nomination, said they would block this nomination. and now there seems to be this tone where they want to give susan rice a chance to explain herself, that they're willing to sit down and talk over these issues with her. at a listen to what senator mccain had to say about this over the weekend. >> i think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position, just as she said. but she is not the problem. the problem is the
.s. ambassador to the united nations embarked on a delicate bit of diplomacy this morning with three of her toughest credit activities capitol hill. ms. rice met with republican senators john mccain, lindsay graham, and kelly ayott, all had vowed to block her nomination after what she said about the deadly attack on americans on n benghazi, libya. here's what graham said moments ago when the meeting came to a close. >> if you don't know what happened, just say you don't know what happened. people can push you to give explanations and you can say i don't want to give bad information. here's what i can tell you -- the american people got bad information on 16, september. they got bad information from president obama days after. and the question is should they have been giving the information at all. if you can do nothing but give bad information, isn't it better to give no information at all? >> ah. let's go straight to cnn's dana bash. so before we heard that pretty explosive news conference, it seemed as though there was a bit of a softening of some of the gop's opposition to ms. rice's mov
're an ambassador to the united nations -- i want to get your thoughts on this. she said, look, you go well beyond unclassified talking points in your daily preparation responsibilities. i guess the implication being that she would have been aware of other things that were different or contradicted directly to what she went and said on television. does this cast any doubt on her story? general clark has made what i've heard from everybody who knows her that she is an incredibly honest and forthright person. >> well, i think there's a bigger question here, erin, and that's the credibility of the administration on these national security issues and whether they politicized a national security issue that led to the death of four americans. i mean, i do -- i don't agree that the american people were not misled on this. i don't know how five days afterwards, a senior official -- first of all, i don't understand why susan rice was in that chair as opposed to hillary clinton as u.n. ambassador, she had nothing to do with what happened in benghazi. but besides that, you know, the issue here is why did the
questions have been answered. >> when you have a position where you'rer -- your ambassador to the united nations, you go well beyond unclassified talking points in your daily preparation and responsibilities for that job. and that's troubling to me, as well. >> all kisay, the concerns i have are greater today than they were before. and weare not even close to getting to the basic answers. >> did we find out anything from today's meeting? ambassador john bolton is here. your thoughts on the meeting with ambassador rice on capitol hill. >> from susan rice's point of view, this is a disaster, an opportunity to try to draw the sting out of the opposition that had been expressed by senator mccain and the others. obviously went in the opposite direction, when have you all three senator who is participated in the meeting, coming out after saying they have more questions now than they did before. this was a bad meeting, no doubt about it. i think part of the problem here is the continued focus by the white house, by susan rice, by people looking at it, on these so-called talk points that somebod
as the ambassador . united nations she reviewed more than that. >> in a written statement she knows that the intelligence that she based her sunday swars on is wrong and there no spontanous demonstration and saying while we wish we had had perfect information just days after the terrorist attack as is often the case inteleassessment evolve would and neither i nor anyone in the administration intended to mislead the american people in any stage in this progress. it all comes as a memo reveals that al-qaida was organized in september to carry out attack in tunisia and egypt and yephen well size libya. much of the focused on benghazi alone. these three embassy assaults deserve scut ninny and they are all connected to the al-qaida-led network. senator carl levin said it is not fair to hold her responsible for the original talking points since she did not produce them and the intelligence community stood by them. >> gretchen: there is no shock there. democrats will support susan rice. >> brian: i was stunned by yesterday. >> gretchen: this entire thing is a political football. this is wh
this to supporters on saturday. we're on our way to the united nations. there are lots of states supporting us who support peace and justice. all the factions are with us in going to the united nations. do you -- there are some diplomatic snags, i think it's fair to say. >> yes. >> abbas's office says hamas supports the move. hamas spokesperson said in the jerusalem post, in fact, they don't support the move. explain to me how you're going to be able to navigate this. >> yes. no, we're navigating it very easily because the official statement came out today. yesterday there was a bit of confusion from different hamas sources. but they called the president today and told him he's fully supportive of this move. the hamas official spokesperson came out and said hamas as a whole supports this move and stands behind it. so we really have unanimous total support for going to the u.n., the general assembly, and for getting the application to state status, enhancing our presence and enhancing, of course, our internal political realities as well as our international standing. and getting the recognition of
gop lawmakers grow the united states ambassador to the united nations susan rice about her initial comments after the september 11th attack on the u.s. embassy and benghazi libya. you're looking at the aftermath from that attack. >> closed the door, but we are hearing something about it. susan rice conceding today that she made a mistake and calling the attack on the consulate and libya of spontaneous protest rather than a terror attack. if she talked thought that talkg all this over with her critics would make things better she was wrong. secretary of state hillary clinton was not talking to reporters today. and she left their meeting with three republican senators. they say when she characterized the attack on the >> the information given to the american people was wrong in fact ambassador rice said today absolutely it was wrong. >> after the attack rice did a lot of talking on tv including the sunday talk shows. she says she was using on classified as talking points which have been stripped of references to out tied up. reportedly she admitted to the senators tuesday that she wa

rice of the united nations for going out on television and saying that story. clearly was not true, from what we know now, but guys like you are being criticized by, for instance, members of the congressional black caucus. they say that you and john mccain are sexist and racist as well for criticizing ambassador rice. >> well, when you can't answer the question, you attack the questioner. the only color i'm worried about when it comes to benghazi is red. blood red. the death of four americans. what motivates senator mccain and myself is that we were in libya last september. we came back and wrote an op ed piece that if we don't form a national army to replace these militias, libya is going to break apart. and the sad story here is not just the four dead americans, which is heart breaking, the libyan people want to move forward and this leading from behind by obama, we've done nothing to help them mr. an army to replace the militia. >> steve: absolutely. we've simply got to get to the bottom of this because as you said, four americans are dead here. senator lindsey graham, joining u
